They offer shorter responses, make more speech errors – more um’s, er’s ah’s…blink more, fidget more. They change their voices, are overly defensive, try changing the subject by using humor or sarcasm.
Nice idea but when the person is being spoekn about by tens of people, he can’t go around requesting that people stop saying malicious rumors about him. Everyone should learn shmiras halashon & put it into practice! Then mashiach will come and we won’t have tzaros which people can “yent” about!
Besides all the halachic problems, pets are an expense. I know a family who us struggling with money, yet they wanted pets. They purchase lots of pet food and in turn, they have less food to eat! Now they get money from matan biseser. It’s very sad.
A beneficial, healthy lifestyle is avoiding sugar, white flour, potatoes and oil. I know numerous people who have lost a lot of weight as a result. Sugar causes headaches, fatigue and illnesses. Whole grains contain fiber, which keeps you satiated, and contains many nutrients. Drink lots of water-it hepls digestion and keeps you full, causing you to eat less. A nice portion of daily self control is imperative!
I feel that maintaining friendships is even more challenging than initiating new ones. When poeple move on with their lives, life becomes very hectic. If your close friend moves overseas and there a huge time difference, it’s up to both of you to keep it up. However, often one party is better at keeping up and instead of feeling, “Why am I always going after her?” try judging favorably. It’s such a chaval when friendshps dissapate.If there isn’t investment on both ends, it’s sure to slip. The minute you think you have a relationship in yuor pocket, it disappears.
It says “Kabed es avicha,” not “v’ahavta.” Just show respect and every step you take is huge! Lefum tza’ra agra. R’ Dessler says that when we give to others, it makes us love them. Try that. If your father upsets you, perhaps attempt to think what he felt at the time. Sometimes, rachmanus helps.
Why does everybody “yap” and try analyzing why people go tdivorced, why that kid got kicked out of school etc….? If they want to help, they should daven, instead of being over many lavim of lashon hara.
Why would you wear black ones then? Do you like the box it puts you in? Wearing jeans is a statement in our community.
It’s tragic that so many people who need help won’t get it out of fear of what will occur during shidduchim, lest one find out. If they put off long enough getting the help they need, once they get married the issue will rear its ugly head, and their spouse will be betrayed in any case. Something must be done to remove the stigma.
